Dirt Bike Tires

Having a good set of tires can make or break your ride. There are a few factors to take into consideration before ordering new dirt bike tires. Firstly, the terrain. Much like ATV/UTV tires, dirt bike tires are constructed to handle different types of riding. The terrains of dirt bike tires are:

  • Soft
  • Intermediate
  • Hard
  • Sand
  • Tires can be in any of these terrains specifically, or in a range, i.e. soft-intermediate. It’s important to pick the terrain of tire that corresponds with where you are riding. If you’re riding somewhere rocky or with lots of sharp, potential trail hazards, a hard terrain tire should be the go-to. Comprised of softer, more flexible rubber, this tire will flex around the debris on the trail and decrease your chances of popping a tire. On the flip side, any loose, soft, relatively-hazard-free terrain should be navigated with a softer terrain tire. The harder rubber gives bite and traction to keep your bike from slipping. As for riding in sand or the dunes, sand paddles are going to be the best option.

    Another factor worth considering is the type of dirt bike tire—radial, or bias. The difference between the two comes down to the placement of ply cords. Radial tires are constructed with ply cords extending from bead-to-bead at a 90° angle. This makes them stiffer, but provides longer tread life. Bias tires are created with ply cords extending diagonally from bead to bead at 30-60° angles. This gives the tires better flexibility, which makes them more comfortable on those rocky or rough terrains, but also less durable than their radial counterparts.

    When it comes to the size of your new dirt bike tires, it’s best to stick as close to stock as possible. There isn’t much room for height and width changes on a dirt bike, and committing to a drastic change could mean rubbing and damaging of other components. So check your owner’s manual, the sidewall of your tire, or our Tire Information page before investing in some new rubber.

    If you’ve taken the time to decide what type of tire you need, or just want to browse to see what’s available, don’t worry. We stock top brands like:

    • Tusk Dsport® Adventure Tire

      morgan in AZ

      Good tire but not for me.

      Im gonna start off by saying these are a good tire however they are not for me. I ride a DR650 and ride true 50/50. This is a 80/20 tire at best. Once I hit some sand...they excelled pretty well. On hardpack, not the best. Felt a little loose. On the road...buzzy and squirley...grabs every grove in the road and didnt feel to confident in them. Just took them off after a 400 mile trip. They still look great after that trip but again, just not the best choice for my terrain and riding style.

      Real nice

      Gummy but not to soft. Awesome tires and fit great. Can't wait to ride with them and put them to the test. Changed the tires myself with the tusk tire iron kit. (Great kit also super easy to change at home)

      Florida riding

      Took the bike out for first ride with new tires in the Ocala National Forest last weekend. Handles great on the single track and even held its own in the heavy sand sections. Great tires!!!

    • Pirelli MT21 Rallycross Dual Sport Front Motorcycle Tire

      Jim in AZ

      Great Dual Sport Tire!

      Works okay off-road, works okay on-road. A great compromise for light weight dual sport bikes. Air it up for use on pavement to prevent uneven wear of the center knobs.

    • Shinko R525 Hybrid Cheater Tire

      Trent in UT

      Best Rear Tire I've used!

      Best rear tire I've ever used. I kept anticipating the tire to spin in sections it would grip. Thing grips to everything! Haven't used it in wet conditions yet but it grips EVERYTHING. I do have to say I replaced the Tusk Recon piece of junk with this tire and it was night and day different. That Tusk Tire is the worst tire I've ever purchased.
